ABOUT DAYS FOR GIRLS
Days for Girls has provided safe, beautiful, washable, and long-lasting menstrual kits along with vital education materials to more than 1.5 million women and girls in more than 125 countries throughout the world. Prior to receiving these kits, the women and girls resorted to using such things as rags, mattress stuffing, or banana leaves to manage their menstruation.
In October 2017, Altrusa International approved Days for Girls as our International Service Project. This means that Altrusa Clubs throughout the world will be working on this project in small ways such as collecting travel-size bars of soap or in larger ways such as holding sewing days to build the kits – one of which is shown below.
